Industry Backdrop: Headwinds placing enhanced focus on competitiveness across OEMs despite presence of strong fundamentals & long-term demand drivers
The global trucking industry is driven by strong fundamentals & presence of long term, sustainable demand as well as growth drivers given the key role played by the transportation industry towards economic growth & development. The current & near term picture for the industry, however, shows a difficult terrain marked by a multitude of complex challenges which will have to be navigated by the industry skillfully. The global trucking industry faces headwinds with slowing down of the world economy, stalling of economic recovery in the EU, slump in mining & moderate growth in construction activity besides continued economic challenges across BRIC markets which are likely to impact demand for medium & heavy duty truck segment significantly over near term. Continued demand growth for Class 6-8 trucks in the North American Truck market; driven by continued improvement in freight demand & construction activity; remains as the key growth driver for global trucking industry of-late with emerging markets, too, facing economic issues & challenges. However, continued R&D activity & technological development by the industry; transpiring into enhanced safety, efficiency, performance while offering increased environmental sustainability & reduced operating as well as total lifecycle costs; is likely to be the key demand & growth driver over medium term.
The North American medium & heavy truck market is projected to witness moderate growth over near term with the focus, stance & timing of fiscal & monetary policy interventions in the U.S. likely to be crucial for the industry over near term. Additionally, major alterations in the global terms of trade with falling crude oil prices & continued slide in Euro against the U.S. Dollar are likely to be favorable for the industry. The tumbling of crude oil prices are likely to boost activity & fleet utilization levels while slide in Euro is likely to bolster competitiveness & profitability for the European OEMs, which traditionally derive a substantial share of their revenues from outside continental Europe. Also, significant investments towards infrastructure repair, rebuilding & development are likely to be made by the U.S., Turkey & India over medium term which is likely to drive demand as well as activity across these markets.
